Termite Treatment Options

A termite examination is the first step in termite management

Baiting or Cleaning Is our First Line of Defense

Termite baiting does not involve spraying chemicals or trenching. Stations are placed in particular areas around your home and when termite activity is found, baits are placed inside the existing stations. The termite bait used is non-chemical that contains an active ingredient, so efficient that only a small amount is needed. Termites consume the bait and bring it to back the colony where they share it with other termites.

The Other Preliminary Option Is:

Termite dusting is the very first phase of a termite treatment as it requires using active termites. Sydney’s Castle Hill Pest Controluse Termidor Dust which is non-repellent and is 95.5% food alpha cellulose, the same material used as the food source in most of the termite bait systems.

To Use Termidor Dust: Little holes are made in infested wood or straight onto termite routes. Using a little puffer, fine dust is puffed directly onto termites within the infested wood, these holes are covered to seal the workings, to prevent any dust getting away and to decrease disruption of the termites.

The termites will continue togo about their regular activities long enough to move the Termidor Dust to unwary termites within the colony. It will typically take 3-6 weeks for the colony to be affected by the dust.

Termite dusting nevertheless does not offer an on-going defense to a building from future termite attacks. There might be more than one termite nest within striking distance and termites are constantly establishing new nests.

This is why a termite soil treatment is crucial following termite dusting.

2nd Stage of a Termite Treatment

Termite Soil Treatment: Termite soil treatments are the favored option for eliminating termite problems. However, soil treatment does depend on the building and construction style of your home and can be discussed with the specialist on the day of the termite examination.

Termite soil barrier treatments are applied to soil areas in which the structure is in contact with including:

  • Subfloor.

  • Concrete slab borders.
  • External wall borders.
  • Execution of soil treatment.

If the distance between the soil and flooring lumbers is greater than 400-mm the soiled areas within the subfloor are trenched and treated. In any case we usually prefer to treat the entire of the subfloor. This increases surface area coverage in the subfloor and therefore increases the possibility of termites coming into contact with Termidor.

Concrete borders are drilled at roughly 20 to 30-cm centres (1.2-cm holes), injected and re-concreted, as if absolutely nothing happened.

These areas could include:.

  • Patios.
  • Courses.
  • Garages.
  • Fireplaces.
  • Bathrooms.
  •  Laundries.
  • External Boundary Walls.
  • Soiled areas will be trenched or rodded.
  • Concrete areas will be drilled.

There Are Two Main Types of Soil Treatments:.

Repellent: Repellent termiticides work by producing a termite poisonous barrier around a house. The treated areas become a no-go zone for termites. In order to work properly, these termiticides require to be applied in an unbroken zone around the structures. This can be difficult to attain due to the building and construction and design of your home and if there is concrete against your home. Repellent termiticides are mostly used throughout the pre-construction phase.

Non-repellent: With non-repellent termiticide, termites are not able to spot that an area has been treated and for this reason do not avoid the treated location. When the termites travel through the termiticide, they make contact with the active ingredient, return to the colony and infest the unwary termites, which will lead to their extermination.

Castle Hill Pest Control provides a 5-year warranty on non-repellent treatment. Conditions do apply and are subject to the house structure and design.

Termite Baiting & Monitoring Systems.

Termite baiting does not involve spraying chemicals or trenching. Stations are placed in particular areas around your home and when termite activity is found, baits are placed inside the existing stations. The termite bait used is non-chemical that contains an active ingredient, so efficient that only a small amount is needed. Termites consume the bait and bring it to back the colony where they share it with other termites.

The tracking and baiting is a complete system that involves

  • Placing tracking stations into the ground around the whole external perimeter of the property.

  • Placing special stations inside the structure if there are active termites.

Termite baiting systems work very well, and when a nest is gotten rid of or controlled, the termite tracking stations will continue to safeguard your home against new termite activity. The estimated time of colony removal is 3– 6 months.
